High expectations, by all, for all, reflecting the example of Jesus


The documents below outline our approach to COVID-19 in the school. Please note that our risk assessment is a working document and is subject to regular updating as guidance is changed. Please contact us if you would like the most up to date assessment. 

With the COVID-19 guidance directives, it can sometimes be difficult to know what you should do if a close contact or a pupil starts having COVID-19 symptoms. In an effort to summarise these directives, there is a Q&A section below which we hope will provide you with easy-to-follow steps, should you need them. We do ask that you refer to this in the first instance, but please don’t hesitate to contact the school should you still have any questions.

What happens if a pupil tests positive?

People aged under 18 years old do NOT need to self-isolate if they come into close contact with a positive case. 

What if my child develops COVID-19 symptoms?

If your child is symptomatic for COVID-19, please do not send your child into school from that moment and arrange a PCR test. If the test results come back and are negative, the child can then return to normal activities, but if it comes back positive, they will need to continue self-isolating. 

Any other household members under the age of 18 or who have had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will not need to self-isolate unless they develop symptoms themselves. Anyone not meeting these requirements, however, WILL also need to self-isolate.

What if someone in our household tests positive? Can my child still go to school?

Yes they can. Household members do not have to self-isolate if they are aged under 18 years or are fully vaccinated.
